Aye, I think more video on Green Stuff techniques and tips would be fantastic.
There is stuff out there, but a lot of it misses out the basic principals that experienced sculptors probably take for granted, but for new folk make such a significant difference.
On the video front, I just read things online and watched YouTube videos to learn how to do video/ audio editing and such.
I got some basic tips for y'all to get you started if you're interested (a lot of it wont make sense until your doing it mind XD)
Download Audacity (it's a free piece of open source software).
You can record and edit your Audio in this program to improve the quality.
Basic Audio editing using Audacity
- Compress audio:
Select Track > Effects > Compressor
Compress based on peaks
- Remove noise:
Select some noise (sound of mouse clicks for example) on track > Effects > Noise removal > Get noise profile
Select whole track > Effects > Noise removal > ok
- Adjust volume;
Select Whole Track > effects > amplify >Adjust as needed > ok
- Export as .MP3
You can then pop it in to your video editing software(I'd recommend Adobe Premier if possible, but window Movie Makers does the job tbf)
As for Video, you can use almost anything to record the video; iphones have a really good quality video these days, given the right lighting, just make sure whatever you use you keep it steady with a tripod.
Webcams are also good, so long as they're decent (I use a Logitech C920 HD pro 1090p... it's relatively inexpensive and quite good quality).
If you're recording via webcam just download some free recording software. OBS is good as it allows you to stream the process too, if you so wish.
If you decided to use obs, I'd recommend downloading another program called Handbrake. It allows you to convert the file type of the recording.
Some video editing software wont allow you to edit the files that OBS exports otherwise.
Very basic starting point, but it'll get you off the ground and you can kick on from there.
